  Old  Help? Bad coding on my site

*Edit* I've posted this in the wrong section >.> *Edit*

Hey Guys

I've got a really annoying bit of bad coding on my site over @ http://www.essentiacreativedesign.com if you look at the very top left corner, there's a closing bracket. Its WP based but i have no idea where to look to find where it could possibly be. Can anyone help shed some light?

Would be lovely!

There is " /&gt; directly below the <body> tag, whichever template has that likely has what you are looking for. There are a few people here who are better with wordpress than I am who may be able to give you more specific help.

Village Genius is right about the extra code in the theme, but also if you look all the scripts, styles, meta tags and such are thrown in the body when in fact they belong in the head.

Feel free to hit me up for some help fixing your theme.

ok, its look like bad escaping of meta character, in html code or WP code look for line no 60 its look like

Code:
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="<meta name=\"google-site-verification\" content=\"4RW42mMA-XgX0A2KMxjx4ryhSx-YhAcPcl1k401I_eo\" />" />
change this to

Code:
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="<meta name='google-site-verification' content='4RW42mMA-XgX0A2KMxjx4ryhSx-YhAcPcl1k401I_eo' />" />
